    I'm a Class of 2014 appointee and I'm trying to figure out where I'm supposed to send in my birth certificate. I found this address on USNA's website, but I'm not sure if it's right.

    Superintendent
    U.S. Naval Academy
    Nominations and Appointments Office
    117 Decatur Road
    Annapolis, MD 21402-5019

    Can any other appointees tell me where you sent your birth certificate?

    I sent mine to

    U.S. Naval Academy
    Nominations and Appointments Office
    117 Decatur Road
    Annapolis, MD 21402-5019

    because the sheet about birth certificates said to send it to the Nominations and Appointments Office, and that was the address for Nominations and Appointments given on another form/envelope.

    Either way, I think you're safe.

    I was wondering. Does the birth certificate have to have a raised seal on it or can I just order copies from Vital records?

    pilotmom15,

    Pretty sure that this is a trick question... Copies from vital records (at least in my state - PA) do have a raised seal! I would suggest calling your state's vital records department as I was unable to verify that Maryland's copies do in fact have raised seals, but I bet that they do.

    Good luck.

    sending birth cert

    Yes, you have the address correct. Child sent raised seal birth certificate with self-addressed stamped envelope for easy return. Also sent the birth certificate via certified to make sure that it got to USNA. Received the postcard that it was received a few days after it was sent; received the birth certificate back in pre-addressed envelope about a week after that with a note that it had been added to file.
